PROMOTED Whitby Maroons put 10 tries past mid-table Seghill on Saturday and the scoreline made it look like a complete mauling.

However this was not the case - Seghill wanted to play rugby and had a good home record to boot.

Whitby played their usual style, sucking in the defence and spinning the ball out wide.

Ed Richardson scored early, with Nick Beaumont adding a 50m try later on.

Matt Russell led the way as always but it was the youngsters who demolished the home side.

Young scored for the visitors just before half-time for 17-0 despite some late pressure from Seghill.

A good tackling display in defence and some awesome power in attack in the second half blew the home side away.

The pack set up good recycled ball for the backs to carve the defence open.

Good passing from Pete Stentiford enabled Steve Allen time and space time and time again to run the show.

Roberts, Guy Taylor (2), Craig (2), Nick Beaumont again and Trueman went over to score.

This performance was Whitby’s best for the past three years.

With only two games left, Maroons must continue to build now for next season in the Durham and Northumberland League two, which is going to be a massive step up.

Shane Young played his part in grabbing the man of the match award jointly with Nick Beaumont.
